    Your instructionns were excellent and worked for me in transferring my outlook 2007 in windows 10. I use it to conllect my mail. I have two questions. First, to get my thousands of old emails into this vision, do I do “file imports” or do I take the humongoins .plst file I got off my old windows 8.1 computer and look and see where the new, empty .pst file is and swap them. Question 2 is whether there is any limimt to how large a .pst file can get.?

      Hi! We’re glad to hear that you were successfully able to configure your Yahoo mail to Outlook with the help of our instructions. And yes, you can use the “File Imports” option for transferring your old emails. The maximum technical limit of how large a .pst file can be is of 50 GB on Outlook.
